Protecting Our Environment Through Public Policy

Our hundreds of grassroots environmental lobbyists are a key part of making real charge for our environment.  Each winter we hold environmental lobby trainings throughout the state to familiarize the public with how the legislative process works.  We help you communicate before and after the session with your legislator.  And during the session we have a rapid response listserv and various in person environmental lobby days for those who want to be involved in the nitty-gritty of the law making.
